Question ATI x1950 pro - problem installing legacy ATI driver on Windows 7 x64

Dear all,

I'm getting frustrated here.. this is taking weeks now and I tried everything I know to resolve the problem but no luck so far.

I have ATI x1950 pro VGA card and I need to install its driver on windows 7 x64

I tried installing the legacy 10.2 driver downloaded from AMD website but after installation I restart the PC, I see the windows 7 loading logo then I can't see the welcome screen but I hear windows startup sound! to be able to see my desktop again I have to hard restart the PC and login to safemode and remove ATI driver (which shows under unknown devices)

The problem isn't with ATI driver only it seems that I can't see my desktop with (microsoft's Standard VGA Graphics Adapter driver) also (check attached image)

I tried removing ATI driver and clean the system with "AMD Catalyst TwL Cleaner v3.9.2" but I got the same problem after using.

Please help how do I fix this problem?

If your video card is showing as Unknown device even after installing the v10.2 legacy driver, then we can assume that it's not the correct one. As far as I know AMD no longer supports your Card.

1. Try the auto-detect option in AMD website.

AMD Driver Autodetect

2. Try these:

AMD Catalyst 9.2 Windows Vista 64 Bit

AMD Catalyst 9.3 Windows Vista 64 Bit

Thanks Strider for your suggestions, I tried the "AMD Driver Autodetect" tool and directed me to the same driver that I'm using. I tried version 9.2 for windows x64 and I got the same problem again and the card is still showing under unknown devices. The thing that amazes me is why after installing everything it shows microsoft's Standard VGA Graphics Adapter driver under unknonw devices as well!!
